Explain what is m
Sub: Haussmannization of Paris
Through your esteemed newspaper wish to raise my concern about the reformation plan of Haussmann in Paris.
First, we should understand what Haussmannization was. When Louis Napoleon III (a nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte) became emperor in 1852 undertook the work of rebuilding of Paris.
He proposed Baron Haussmann, the chief architect for this purpose. Soon, Haussmann began rebuilding and reshaping the entire city of Paris. It is therefore called Haussmannization of the Paris.
No doubt it has created some problem for the poor, but more than that it has changed the face of Paris. Development of a nation can't compromise in the interest of a lesser section of people. So, whenever development takes a shape it affects some people, but in the interest of nation it is necessary. The way in which Haussmann rebuilt Paris is really praiseworthy. He laid out new streets, straight sidewalks, boulevards and open avenues, and planted full-grown trees. Not but the system has also been reconstituted. Policemen have been employed, night patrols have been introduced, bus shelters were built, and tap water have been introduced. All these are in the interest of a nation and people at large. Paris became a symbol of civic pride for the French and it became the nucleus of many new architectural, social and intellectual developments that influenced other parts of the world in the twentieth century. So we can undermine the pains and sufferings of the poor for that. The government will surely take steps for their rehabilitation.
